Report- Heatley Deal Close

...this could be a three-way deal involving the Hawks, Sharks and Senators for Heatley.

Sounds like a deal is going to get done today if it can all be worked out.

Heatley In The Coming Days, Weeks Or Months

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

So you wonder if, at some point, the San Jose Sharks will take the same desperate steps as the Edmonton Oilers did back in the middle of the summer and in a very public way say thanks but no thanks to a possible trade for Dany Heatley.

Until that happens, the rumour mill will probably continue to churn – as it did Thursday night, when ESPN reported the completion of a three-way trade involving the Sharks, Ottawa Senators and the Los Angeles Kings, a deal that was roundly denied all around.

Still, one can imagine that Senators general manager Bryan Murray will be feverishly working the phones for the next 24 hours to make something happen – on the grounds that trading Heatley in advance of training camp is the surest way to limit the disruptive effects of the drama on the team’s 2009-10 season.

More On Heatley To The Sharks

Buccigross loves Twitter,

frolov and stoll to Ottawa..Marleau to LA

update 8:28pm, Scratch that, fake Buccigross.

update 8:30pm, Ha, maybe not fake, but tweet is no longer there.

added 9:08pm, via ESPN,

The Ottawa Senators have reached an agreement to send Dany Heatley to the San Jose Sharks, NHL sources told ESPN’s John Buccigross.

The 28-year-old forward was part of a three-team deal that will send the Sharks’ Patrick Marleau to the Los Angeles Kings and the Kings’ Alexander Frolov and Jarret Stoll to the Senators.

Both Sharks GM Doug Wilson and Senators GM Bryan Murray denied the three-way trade when reached by ESPN.com.

added 9:52pm, from James Gordon of Hockey Capital at the Ottawa Citizen,

The Ottawa Senators have announced Dany Heatley won’t be attending a team golf tournament Friday amid reports the disgruntled winger has been dealt.

added 10:01pm, via the Kings official Twitter,

Kings are aware of today’s ESPN report but there is nothing to it.

added 10:07pm, via Rich Hammond of Inside the Kings,

Well, that’s the two-word text-messaged response from Dean Lombardi, in regard to the ESPN-reported Marleau/Frolov-Stoll/Heatley trade: ``Complete bull.’‘

added 10:25pm, from Allen Panzeri of the Ottawa Citizen,

Murray is also getting increasingly frustrated with the many and various rumours about possible destinations for Heatley. Every time a new team is mentioned as being in the mix, Murray ends up getting a call from a general manager asking how his team ever ended up being named because it isn’t remotely interested. Murray knows rumours come with the territory, but they’re still annoying.

added 10:37pm, from Bob McKenzie of TSN,

Amid reports that the Ottawa Senators have traded Dany Heatley to the San Jose Sharks as part of a three-way deal with the Los Angeles Kings, sources tell TSN nothing could be further from the truth.

Who Would You Want On Your Team- Heatley Or Kessel?

from Ryan Kennedy of The Hockey News,

Two snipers, one question: Dany Heatley or Phil Kessel?

Who would you take?

With NHL training camps inching closer by the day, there are, by my math, roughly 90-plus goals worth of uncertainty still floating around out there in the unhappy Senator and unsigned RFA Bruin.

Will one or both be wearing new uniforms when the season starts? Probably not. It seems more certain with each day that Heatley will begin the year in Ottawa and, despite some draft pick shuffling in Toronto, Kessel remains a valued commodity in Boston.

Are The Rangers A Destination For Heatley?

from Wayne Scanlan of the Ottawa Citizen,

There may only be days to spare, but it remains to be seen whether the reluctant Senator will actually have to show his face in Ottawa. It would certainly appear that no trade is imminent, but the rumours continue to come at us from all angles.

One that made a lot of sense, and still does, involved the New York Rangers and two of their good, young players, defenceman Marc Staal and forward Brandon Dubinsky.

Senators general manager Bryan Murray has always liked Staal, a big, smart defenceman with ideal family bloodlines. The younger brother of Eric and Jordan Staal (with one more bro to come) makes just $765,000 this season before becoming a restricted free agent.

Heatley Prepared To Attend Sens Camp

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

The Senators winger confirmed he’ll be in Ottawa later this week in time to participate in the club’s annual golf tournament Friday at Kanata Lakes and take part in medicals Saturday at Scotiabank Place, but his agent, J.P. Barry, told Sun Media he believes there’s still time for a trade.

While Barry isn’t sure if the deal Heatley requested in June from the Senators is going to happen by the weekend, the agent said the disgruntled winger is willing to meet with GM Bryan Murray and coach Cory Clouston before camp opens.

Heatley will also likely have to address the situation with his teammates.

“He’ll do whatever they want him to do and if they want to sit down, that’s fine,” said Barry, who represents Heatley along with Stacey McAlpine. “The situation isn’t any different. He’ll be there when camp opens and he’ll be ready to go. But I want to make clear that there is still time for a deal. This situation isn’t totally in our control.”

The Latest Heatley Talk

from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,

“Basically, what I’ve said (to other teams) is just tell me what you’re willing to do, I’ll talk to you and we’ll go from there and we’ll make a decision one way or another. But, I can’t say I’m overly optimistic now.”

League sources say the San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers both remain interested, but neither side is close to deal. It’s believed if the Senators are going to make a deal with San Jose, they want Joe Thornton in return.

The Sharks don’t want to move Thornton and have never offered centre Patrick Marleau, either. Another league executive told Sun Media yesterday that “discussions are quiet on the San Jose front and they might resume during training camp.”

via Tim Sassone of Between The Circles at the Chicago Daily-Herald,

As for the Hawks, rumors started Friday and into Saturday that they might be interested in trading for disgruntled Ottawa Senators winger Dany Heatley.

So far this is only a rumor, and it hasn’t been reported anywhere. Funny, I sat near GM Stan Bowman at Friday’s White Sox game and he was working his Blackberry most of the night. Maybe it was just typical GM stuff.
